My name is Rob Blagden and I’m currently the Deputy Director of IT for 2gether NHS FT. I am pursuing a Masters degree in Digital Health Leadership at Imperial College London. I am conducting a research study for my dissertation. The study aims to investigate the implementation of BYOD in the NHS and produce implementation guidance and common best practices.


You are invited to participate in this study

If you agree, you are invited to:
1. Complete an online survey of 10 questions, that is expected to take no more than 5 minutes to complete.

They will last no more than 30 minutes and be held at a mutually agreed time and place, possibly via telephone depending on your location. Interviews will be recorded for transcription and coding and you do not have to answer any questions you do not want to. If you do not want to be recorded, handwritten notes will be taken. You can indicate if you want to opt-in to the follow up interview at the end of the online survey.
